This is why emulators were made.

I don't see a faux-wood-grain Atari 2600.

This guy is a LOSER.
 
2012-05-20 12:49:55 PM  
I'm the bigger loser because it bugs me they're not on the shelves alphabetically

Dick: I guess it looks as if you're reorganizing your records. What is this though? Chronological?
Rob: No...
Dick: Not alphabetical...
Rob: Nope...
Dick: What?
Rob: Autobiographical.
Dick: No farking way.

There seems no ordering system to them at all. Not release date, company, etc..
 
2012-05-20 01:02:37 PM  
Seems a bit redundant. Looks like both an NES and a Famicon, as well as the SNES and Super Famicon. Multiple Gamecubes, PS2's, PSP's and other handhelds. Dude's obviously got more money than sense.

Droog8912: This is why emulators were made.


He has a MAME cabinet, but his arcade stick isn't in proper format for SNK games, so it would be pretty awkward to play on. I'd probably stick with using the NeoGeo for those if I were him. He's also missing a Mortal Kombat layout, but he may not be a fighting game player.

I love all the virgin replies so far.

cartridges not organized along side their respective consoles?

total fail

Dumb.

TFA asks how he switches all those inputs. I have an older flatscreen with only one HDMI port and I got one of these for $10.

It automatically switches to the port it detects a signal on, or you can push the button on it. I guess he could have a bunch of these.

I can understand it; he's a collector. It's more about having all the different versions of the hardware rather than being able to play an on NES game.
 
2012-05-20 01:27:24 PM  
plus the zapper wont work with non-crt screens, so DOUBLE FAIL on you

That explains the NES1 and NES2

Classic consoles hooked up to a widescreen LCD TV? Turn in your nerd badge sir.

Old games were written with scanlines in mind, and you can't even play Duck Hunt without a CRT.

Very few of the consoles shown have HDMI output. Pretty much only the current generation of consoles have HDMI out, and not Nintendo.

Virgin woodworker perhaps, but my bet he's wielded his 8bit to have had a son.

... the 360 is in the den "cause my son plays that one"
 
2012-05-20 02:06:52 PM  
Pete has it going on. He's stuff is much better organized, he knows to use CRT for classics, and a much better virginal probability.

Serious fail. TV is too high on the wall otherwise you end up with severe neck pain.
Never understood the fascination with putting a tv over your fire place either

Wrong kind of TV too as others have mentioned. He's obviously more interested in just owning the consoles themselves than actually playing them. Which I guess is fine, though I would want to be able to play them the way they were meant to be played. Most of them will look horrible on an HDTV, might as well use an emulator.

Egh. I have a friend that has all his stuff hooked up to a 55" LCD tv, and I didn't think the 8-bit stuff looked horrible.

It won't look horrible really but it won't look right either. The old games were written to take advantage of scanlines to smooth out sprites and colors. On an HDTV Super Mario World will look blocky and more Atari 2600 like than it would on a standard CRT television.

He has a arcade board behind his couch which is at eye level, he also said the height of the TV doesn't bother him

This guy is a LOSER.

His wood grain 2600 is at a secondary TV away from the main display

First thing I noticed was that SSB was the cartridge in the N64, as god intended.

I actually kinda like SSB64 on a flat screen. The blockiness makes the hit boxes more apparent.

What I gathered from his you tube channel was that he modified all of the older consoles to have HDMI video outputs. From what I watched he basically converted the NES console into an emulator.

Since we're fantasizing, my ultimate would be a separate TV for each console, that TV being the most advanced, highest-quality of the year the console was released.

So much this. Once when I was visiting a friend of my ex-girlfriends I saw that she had her TV above her fireplace. I asked her if she was dumb, and she flipped out on me. My ex was also not amused. Did not get laid that night.
